Packers unsure of Rodgers' status for Week 2

Adjust Comment Print

The Packers posted the second-largest comeback in franchise history at Lambeau Field, behind only a rally from 21 points down to beat New Orleans on September 17, 1989.

At that point, the Packers were losing by 17 points and Aaron miraculously came back into the game after halftime. It marks the fifth-straight time the Bears have lost to the Packers and the fifth-straight opening game loss for the team.

The Chicago Bears almost had a superb upset to start the 2018 National Football League season against the rival Green Bay Packers, which was fueled by recently-acquired star Khalil Mack. Like noted in the disclaimer before this stock report, this is all relatively new to Trubisky, and he will look more comfortable in the system, but it was tough optics for the Bears franchise quarterback in game one.


Taken from the field in a cart in the first half after injuring his left knee, Rodgers returned in the second half and re-entered the game. He threw three touchdown passes - one each to Geronimo Allison, Davante Adams and Randall Cobb - to dig the Packers out of a massive hole.

Aaron Rodgers exits the field Sunday night after a remarkable win over the Chicago Bears. The Bears added another Parkey field goal on their first drive of the second half.

I'm not sure we should expect the Rams' defense to be great right away.


"I don't know", Zimmer said about the injury and the game.

Rodgers missed nine games last season due to a collarbone injury. Gurley is the better player, facing a much worse defense, so I feel good about this pick even if Lynch gets a ton of carries. Trubisky ran it in for a 2-yard TD on the read-option keeper, giving the Bears the early lead.

It turned out to be the only offensive touchdown the Bears would score all night.


Packers Head Coach Mike McCarthy on Monday said no decision had been made on whether or not Rodgers would take the field to face the Minnesota Vikings. The comeback was extra special because of just how deeply Packers fans had fallen into a pit of despair before their spirits soared sky-high when Rodgers started painting a second-half masterpiece. "We'll do tests [Monday], and you'll get a better answer Wednesday when I talk".
